Schnapsenis the Austrian version of the classic German card game Sixty-six. The basic idea of the trick-taking game for two people is to get points by taking valuable cards with tricks and getting bonus points by announcing marriages (Kings and Queens of the same suit).
There are some specific rules for Schnapsenthough. For example you play with trick taking and taking cards from the Talon without following suit. If the Talon contains no more cards or is 'closed' you have to follow suit and trick. To win a round (Bummerl) you need to achieve 66 points or you have to take the last trick. You win if you achieve seven game points.
Schnapsenrequires concentration and poses a new challenge all the time - it is one of Austria's most popular card games for a reason.
